I'm liking my .Mac membership, but I prefer using Firefox (or even Opera) rather than Safari as my web browser. The Safari bookmarks can sync with .Mac, but I find that as I add new bookmarks to Firefox, I also have to remember to add them to Safari to keep my online bookmarks up to date. Is there any utility that will keep Safari's bookmarks in sync with Firefox's? Thanks!

Well unfortunately as far as I am aware, iSync (with .Mac) is indeed limited to Safari.

So for all my other syncing needs I've just started using a program called Chronosync and so far I am loving it.
Really great App, you can sync literally anything with it, including between computers over networks.

It also works really well as a backup utility too!

Good luck, hope this helps you!

Thanks very much. That looks like good app, but it provides a lot more than I really need. It turns out, I did find a FireFox extension that will keep bookmarks in sync to/from a remote folder (including on the iDrive), but it doesn't actually update/work with the tightly integrated Safari bookmark sync'ing. That's why I was thinking along the lines of just somehow sync'ing Firefox/Safari bookmarks. I'm really surprised that there isn't a bookmark/browser monitor app that would keep bookmarks synchronized between any number of browser. Such a thing would be great in the Windows world too, where on my XP machines, I also run multiple browsers. Anyway, thanks again.

Have a look at this. It seems like it will do what you want, it costs $12, however there may be a free solution to your problem I'm not sure.
